Seadoo intake mani Flame Arestor .
Did a back to back test of the FA removal ... Seen people post that they didn't see any gain ..
Well my boost gauge showed a full min 1 psi gain after removal if slightly more ... Also rpm increased from 8500 to 8580 ...
so if ur chasing just that little bit more ... Then this works well ..
Between the 4 inch rear air with solid pipes , FA removal and short solid pipes on ur IC. ... There is a min 2 psi gain ... Ur not making more boost out of nothing , ur harnessing ur full power of ur Super charger ...
They may state i.e 15 psi at 8500 rpm , but I bet u don't until the rest is done ...

Yeah I try everything step by step and check boost , rpm and AFR to see the gain ...
Hope this helps anyone who is debating about doing it ...

whats the easiest way to get it out ??? hole saw ???
06-03-2013, 01:47 AM #5
Yep hole saw ... The RIVA kit is the easiest and best ...
U can use a hole saw fom Bunnings and use a old IC blank of kit then u need to buy an OEM clamp ..
At least u have a solid tap for boost etc ...
I have seen guys pull them out thought the throttle body side .. Pain in the ass ...
Also big note , if u do ur own kit not the RIVA ... U will need to trim 6mm of the end after the hole is cut , the OEM clamp is too narrow ... The 08+ intake mani is slightly diff with the FA ...

ok im new to this BUT your saying if i holesaw cut it i can pull out TB side and leave plastic end on other side BUT i wont have a solid place to put boost gauge etc fittings ... i have 08 x mani .. where does orig clamp go ? i dont have plastic TB adaptor between mani and TB

Use a 79mm hole saw at the opposite end of the TB ... Pull FA out the fit end cap that u buy from this site ...
To be honest , it will be cheaper to buy the RIVA kit ... Buy time u get to hole saw , end cap and clamp it would cost almost the same ...
Look it under intake section ...
